Ruth Landau Harp Early Learning is a ‘not for profit’ early education and care Centre established, owned by The Perth Hebrew Congregation. Our mission is to deliver quality care and education programs for children with traditional Jewish values and customs embedded in our everyday practice. Our curriculum teaches and brings to life the values, traditions, and appreciation of Judaism at a level the children can understand. The play-based curriculum seamlessly integrates the Jewish Holidays and topics with all areas of the Early Years Learning Framework.
We are a community of people committed to the care and development of young children, helping them to flourish and bloom as they reach their true potential and take their place in the world as kind and compassionate global citizens.
Children are recognised as active, capable, competent and valued members of our community. The children are at the centre of all that we do, allowing them to take an active role in the construction, acquisition and direction of their learning. Through listening to their ideas, seeking their opinions and observing their actions, we are able to plan according to what interests the child and ensure their voice is represented by our programs and visually in our service. We work in partnership to make decisions affecting their individual learning journey. By recognising the ‘rights of the child’ (UN Conventions), we empower them with a sense of agency over their learning and environment.
